Kevin Lisch :: Most Likely to Appear in the Olympics

Back in 2005, his Althoff Catholic classmates voted him “Most Likely to Appear in the Olympics” in the senior superlatives section of the yearbook.  In honor of this tremendous accomplishment, we revisit Kevin’s profile from his 2015 Althoff Catholic Alumni Hall of Inspiration “Rising Star” induction.

Most Meaningful Professional Accomplishments

I am grateful that basketball has allowed me to meet and learn from so many amazing people around the world. While playing in Australia, I was able to be part of the Starlight Foundation. Through this foundation, members of our team would visit sick and terminally ill children in hospitals and participate in various fun activities with them. Another year I had the opportunity to help out in an extremely low socio-economic school with the goal of increasing student attendance and reading skills. My professional life has given me the privilege of serving those less fortunate. Finally, the unique opportunity for my family and I to travel the world and experience different cultures and languages is something that makes me very proud and grateful.”

Fondest High School Memory
“I will always remember Althoff Catholic as a very close and tight-knit community. The school provided me with the tools and means to deepen my Catholic faith.”

Advice to Althoff Catholic Students
“Simply put, help and notice others along the way. People will forget your worldly accomplishments and accolades, but they will always remember how you made them feel.”
